The US and allies test unmanned ground systems

The use of unmanned ground systems is in its infancy as a military capability, but engineers are making tremendous advancements toward interoperable robotics with NATO allies. Over the last decade, the majority of their use on the ground has been in support of explosive ordinance missions.

Recently, the Maneuver Battle Lab revealed a glimpse into the future as the United States and North Atlantic Treaty Organization nations collaborated to use one another’s robots in military operations.

The lab conducted an interoperability experiment to demonstrate how US, Turkish and German technical developers could use their respective controllers and integrated software to share and operate other country’s unmanned ground systems to complete tactical tasks.

The experiment is intended to expand the capability of the robotic platform so they can do more and more to help the Soldiers on the field.
